Achieve the Four Modernizations.

Aug 2 maschu commented on Tom Cruise Running in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.
I am Tom Cruise's stunt runner. I'm sorry to say he doesn't do his own running, although he still does his own walking, unlike most of Hollywood. The magic of CGI.
Feb 18 maschu commented on Driving on the Viaduct While Imagining It Collapsing.
Sometimes, I worry that all my hand wringing is going to leave my skin chapped, but I am truly terrified of lotion.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.
And the only thing that stops that good guy with a gun is a bad girl with a gun.
And the only thing that stops a bad girl with a gun is that same bad girl with that same gun.
Aug 23, 2013 maschu commented on Confessions of an Underwhelmed Reader.
Sorry she didn't deliver the Mormon church's knockout feminist blow? Maybe that isn't what the book is about, just what you wanted the book to be.
Jul 31, 2013 maschu commented on Nicole Hardy on Mormonism, Sex, and Feminism.
One quibble near the end of the article, and with Cienna: it is clear you're bitter that she got a book deal and the article is just a petty set up to rip her. Cienna should rethink what it means to be a writer.
Jul 12, 2013 maschu commented on Is West Seattle More Trouble Than It's Worth?.
West Seattle NIMBYs are more bark than bite. Look at all the new development, and realize that a few grumpy comments are having no effect. Relax.
Feb 6, 2013 maschu commented on Boy Scouts Delay Decision on Admitting Gay Members and Leaders.
As an Eagle Scout, I am very disappointed in the Boy Scouts' delay of a decision to admit gay scouts. Looking back, I am sure there were gay kids in my Troop, but it really wasn't germane to the adventures and fun that we had. Many may point to the 'morally straight' in the Oath, but what is more righteous than standing up to discrimination? If they vote to discriminate, they are depriving a lot of kids the opportunity to learn the great lessons that are the core of scouting: honor, loyalty, service to community.

Ladders don't kill people, gravity kills people.
Dec 2, 2012 maschu commented on Mitt Romney Is a Sad and Lonely Man, and His Loss Will Haunt Him Forever.
If you look at the parties' national leaders after their last election, here is the tread: republicans drop off the face of map, democrats continue working on societal good.

Carter: carter center and habitat for humanity
Reagan: retire to ranch
GHW Bush: retire to kennebunkport
Clinton: Clinton global initiative
Gore: Nobel prize
GW Bush: retire to ranch
Mitt: retire to la jolla.

Mitt isn't sad, he is perfectly happy following in the footsteps of elder republicans.
Nov 30, 2012 maschu commented on Here Is a Design Proposal for the Future Basketball Arena.
There is an oval scheme, and a rectangular scheme, then just to blow your mind, an oval within a rectangle scheme.
